Since there's no empty bottle support thread in the rye section I decided to place this post here (sorry if that's frowned upon). I enjoy this 5yr 7mo quite a bit.

It is Empty Bottle, so you could post an empty bottle of Advil if you wanted too. Just saying...…. I like that its open, it shows a little diversity in the bourbon drinkers. 
I have finished off most of this in the past few weeks.  CV-19 has really turned me into a true drinker.... :P

I’m so ashamed. I’ve only managed to kill 3 bottles so far. Unlike some of you old folks I still have to work at home.

Nice L&K pick Blanton's - one of my faves, now long gone.   😢

This one was pretty good.

Finished it today in 2 pours with an ice cube 🧊.

Im not normally one for ice, but it made sense today in my head, for some reason.  🤷‍♂️

Killed this Whistlepig SiB store pick. It was real nice, but I do have better WP store picks on hand.

 

Not pictured, but also killed off that OldFo Signature 100 proof bottle with the older orange-on-clear-plastic label.

 Not a fan of that particular bottling (good riddance). I think I paid something like $15 for it a few years ago so no big deal.

Also - if your current level of sobriety is reflective of the focus level of this photo, I suggest waiting until morning!😄

Unfortunately my phone seems to be running very slowly and it is effecting most functions. I'm also going to have to replace it as well rather soon. But thanks for the advice, the sobriety did in fact depart mid evening and I haven't seen it since.

I was pretty good earlier in the evening. However, I’m making up for lost time now, and will probably be joining you soon. 
 

Biba! Joe

I managed to empty the 4R store pick this weekend. OESV 10 yr 4 months. It was good but nothing spectacular.

I have one of these that I picked up in London at Whisky Exchange Covent Gardens. I really need to open mine. I wonder if it's as similar to Diamond Anniversary as I predict it will be?  Anyway, nice work there dude. Cheers.

I personally feel that it is similar to diamond.  I did an sbs on here awhile back.

If I remember correctly, I felt the diamond was slightly more refined and elegant, where as the 13yDS has just a bit more of that “classic turkey roughness” , if you know what I mean. 🙂

 

I think you’ll enjoy it when you open it.

Great FR bottle if you can find it.  The last once or so went into the infinity bottle...

It seemed silly to leave such a small amount in the bottle, so I finished it off tonight. As I have said before, this 2012 just didn't quite live up to my expectations. Not bad, just not that great.

What do you do when you're at home self quarantining? Finish off this big gem of SW greatness, of course! (These gallon bottles take awhile)

Ok, Ok.......... it's April Fools Day. I got this empty bottle a few years ago, but hey, a guy can dream, right?

What a nice day! We’re out of beer so opted for a bourbon and sprite with heavy lime in a tall glass with ice. WT 101 is my go to for mixing. Opted for a lower proof for the wife. I need to add a 4RYL to my shopping list and avoid these types of casualties!
